AbstractMaintenance and evaluation of a collection of primitive Gossypium barbadense L. cottons progressed in 1987. Conversion of the non flowering tropical cottons to a flowering, day- neutral habit progressed. So did efforts to incorporate potentially useful biological and environmental stress tolerant traits into agronomic Pima backgrounds. Six cottons of the primitive cotton collection were found to potentially possess bacterial blight resistance. Genetic populations were developed to investigate the inheritance and distribution of two mutant marker traits in cotton. Interspecific Fl hybrid populations were developed for evaluation in 1988.

Lint Yield of Several Cotton Varieties Planted on 5 Dates at 3 Locations in Arizona in 1986Kittock, D. L.; Hofmann, W. C. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1987-03)There were some wide variations in cotton variety performance at five planting dates among locations and years. However, on an average, DP 90 and DP 77 performed best when planted between 28 March and 24 April. Stoneville 506 and DP 50 averaged best for May plantings and DP 20, Stoneville 112, and DP 50 averaged best for early June plantings.
